To the Bailey and Dutton Families.
I was saddened when I got the news of Mr Bailey's passing. I know he will be deeply missed by his family and friends. I am honored to have known him. Wesley was great inspiration to me as to how a leader is to act and how ones family is the most important qualty of our lives.
My final thoughts are the pictures Mrs. Bailey shared with me of a strapping young man in his baseball uniform. I know he loved the sport and his time of playing.
Please acccept my condolences.
